BlackBerry 7

Although the last build, OS 7.0.0.503 is still fresh for a lot of folks and working quite fine, a new OS -- v7.0.0.540 has now popped up for you all to take a run at. It's not official in any way but given the rate RIM seems to be pushing out official OS' these days it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to see it go official soon. Either way, if you're all in for testing out an OS for RIM then by all means have at it. Keep in mind, back up your data in case something funky happens.

The only thing I wanna know is if this version FINALLY brings UMA to the Bold 9900 otherwise I'm not gonna even bother trying it... Lol

coolcut

Isn't UMA Carrier specific?

themenacexd

That's what people are saying but then if that's the case then why should we have to wait for 7.1???

sirpedro83

I just got 9900/7.0.0.503 and now this?! I can't help but download it and install it as well. I run this for a week first though maybe something else will come out. Unless this turns out to give me UMA and hotspot

emirozmen

Whats up with leaks every second lol

andino

So jealous of all the 9900 love. We 9930 users need some love too hahah

Cannot get past the captchA. :( It just resets the page.

yvpan1

aha.. i'd better wait for the official version of this build. i'll keep on eye on this.

carriers, come on release this soon!!

Connor83

Would this let me have NFC on my AT&T 9900?

rrrebo

Had to allow popups from fileserve to get the captcha to go through. *boggle*

TheEliteOne

No NFC on this update. I have AT&T and it didn't show up after install.

Now to decide to update to this or stick with the 7.1 hybrid.... Someone help me decide!!

Strider2112

Someone on the .503 official thread had expressed concerns that the "official" was released because the "leak" may have been defective.

Well, this release means .503 was probably defective in some way.

Also can anyone confirm if this update "doubles" the battery life again? Lol

Yellowman11

I updated to this leak from .503 (which I was very very pleased with, just cant help myself for upgrading), and from what I have seen so far, I think this upgrade "doubles" the battery life again! So far going over 6 hours since upgrade and my battery indicator hasn't moved an inch, feels like I haven't used the phone at all, and I sure have (moderately, at least). Giving this thumbs up so far!

rusco

I will wait for carrier release...

ifraser

Once again, UMA is not build dependant, it needs the carrier to push out the correct service
books and I believe, in the UK anyway, next year seems to be the timescales just now.

Another leak already?
The 9900 is sure popular !
Downloading now :)

hybrid1976

Already downloaded! Hopefully there is no issue with the screen going black while on a call and not coming on like in the .353 OS. Also, hope that the screen, keyboard, and trackpad fade incrementally instead of going off abruptly.

egonzal1973

Does anyone has the issue with the 9900 wre it works fine, but all the sudden no email, phone, SMS services even when the screen shows it has good carrier signal? Usually need to take the battery from phone to restart and get it working again? Any ideas?

Xterra2

The updates are coming in fast

zeelob

i've downloaded but cannot execute/run this file....how is it done?

bendiep1991

This update still has the 'Invalid ringtone' error, fuck sakes!

SpeedyBB

OniBerry

Well 7.0.0.503 is now official, so this would be the next great leak...LoL Getting quicker and quicker. I can't complain.

aigi

Yesterday I instaled .540. Looks o.k. I can't find changes from previous version, only, I think, but not sure, than battery life could be longer.

Allan in T.Dot

One word: "Damn". I upgraded from the stock....29 whatever it was because Rogers sucks at updating software. The battery life on this thing now rocks. I haven't found any other issues with the new OS but will post something if it does come up. Just...."damn".

OTCHRussell

what are the chances if I buy this phone from AT&T in Dec it will have the latest updated OS?

gsverwelius

Unless there is a glitch in my battery icon this os is by far the best for battery life

kyrmia

WORD! So far the Best!

goddyo

sorry to post this but i cant get this one to run after i delete th vendor file and start up the loader it doesn't find the os and i dont know where it went. i ve done a ton of these and they usually work for me please help

Zigtown

Here's what I've noticed....after unplugging my phone from the charger and plugging it back in, it states that the cord will not charge it. The only way to get past this is a battery pull with the cable connected or to do alt+ctrl+del with cable plugged in. So very weird.
